Collecting 2013 Flood History


Following the historic flood of 2013 The Lyons Historical Society, (in collaboration with The Lyons Depot Library, The Lyons Area Chamber of Commerce and The Town of Lyons), set about to create a comprehensive flood collection.

The Historical Society is seeking photographs, videos, stories, (written and recorded), emails, texts, drawings, artifacts and art projects that relate to the flood.

From this collection will be created “Flood History Portals.” Each portal is an interactive kiosk that in and entrance into the flood collection. It links visitors to the Redstone Museum and to other history kiosks throughout Lyons.

In September 2014 The Lyons Redstone Museum Presents will host an exhibit that will include information, photos and interactive media related to the flood.
